ocated in the picturesque Clare Valley of South Australia, the Kirrihill Wines story began in the late 1990’s with two friends; both with a rich family history in the Valley dating back to the 1890’s, and both with the same shared passion and dream. That dream was to build a winery and produce world class wines from cool climate vineyards that would showcase the unique characters of the Clare Valley.
"The Kirrihill team is dedicated to not only producing stunning, hand-crafted wines which deliver the essence of Clare, but also striving to raise the bar with every vintage. This spirit and ethic has seen Kirrihill honoured with more than 500 awards, both domestically and internationally, since its first vintage in 1998.”
Now, some 21 years after their first vintage, the team at Kirrihill Wines continue to build on the original vision of producing wines that improve year on year, and showing that dreams really can become reality.
